The Wizard
1981 - 2004 by Paul Espinoza, Forest Moon Music, BMI, all rights reserved
(A note about the Wizard: I wrote this song in February of 1971.  Since that time I have performed it in every band that I have played in -
with the exception of my rock 'n' roll band Pegasus.  Too bad, I can imagine an electric Wizard that would rock the heavens!
It is probably the most requested song I've had since I wrote it.  The amazing thing is that it was not thought out ahead of time,
I just sat down one day and out it poured.  Of course, the modulation idea came after I had finished the song.  That just made it better.
It was recorded in 1981,  in 1987 on Winding Road and later on the Golden Bough Live Reunion Concert DVD in 2005.
Yes, I do intend to record it again!  The ideas for arranging this song continue to grow!)

If you come along and you dance with me,
I will show you things that you'll never see.
I can be the tallest tree,
I can be much laughter.

If you put your hand in mine,
I will show you things in and out of time,
I can be the poet's rhyme, I can be much laughter

I can show love in a million ways,
I can split the color of the sun's hot rays,
I can love you for the rest of your days, I can be much laughter.

I can bring you peace, I can be your friend,
I can give you love that will never end,
I can show you where the rainbow ends, I can be much laughter.

- 3 -
My home is just around the heavenly wood,
kiss my heart to feel so good,
bring your friends to come around, I can be much laughter.

If you want to speak of better days,
If you want to seek the gentle ways,
Bring your friends to come around, I can be much laughter.

Don't you know that I'm easy found,
You needn't even look around,
Open your heart that's where I'm bound, I can be much laughter.

Look upon the flowers that grow so fair,
listen to the birds that fill the air
with the song that I am there, I can be much laughter.

So many years ago I was the one,
I made the earth and I made the sun,
I am the birth of the timeless one, I am mother and father 

Maybe you think I'm a bit insane,
maybe you think that I'm playing a game,
come along now and guess my name, it shouldn't be much
harder.

If you come along and you dance with me,
I will show you things that you'll never see.
I can be the tallest the,
I can be much laughter.

If you put your hand in mine,
I will show you things in and out of time,
I can be the poet's rhyme, I can be much laughter.
